Re: Ashowdown and out

You obviously don’t watch darts either. I covered the disparage in hours of boards broadcast on TV in my original answer did you have a problem understanding it ? If there was anything of my reply you failed to grasp post them up and i will explain them in words of single syllables to help you. I w...

You obviously don’t play darts. The unicorn board is crap. Cut up after as little as a couple of legs.
Got any examples ?

or even what leagues use Unicorn ones rather than Winmau boards ?

Re: TT’S farewell post to lancs.

The County system is just one structure for providing some high-level competition. Take it away and something else would fill the time. If the country system is to survive it need to evolve and change. Its barely changed in the 45 years it has been in existence and whilst it had been very successfu...

Re: Isle of Man date error

Smart move by the EDO to help deflect the ire of the crowd away from Des and his BDO jamboree announcement wagon. You really have to give the EDO board a big round of applause as just when you think you have seen the biggest laughing stock in darts this year so far with the BDO and the World Darts T...

Re: 6th BDO World Darts Trophy 30 Aug - 1 Sep Blackburn

why would he then increase it ?

He's already publicly stated

'I was voted into this position to look after the business, not to make friends, not to please individuals but to try and get this business back ‘on track’ '

So why would he be concerned by a petticoat government ?

Re: 6th BDO World Darts Trophy 30 Aug - 1 Sep Blackburn

Why can't Des sponsor it himself ?

2 tickets, flights ., transport etc to the Ultra Northen Cyprus Jamboree could come to 2k with a bit of spin

Surely everyone in the BDO would rather have this than cold hard cash ?

Lstyle host and sponsor many events in Asia and US.

Biggest darts brand in Asia.

This deal is totally different to the EDO deal.
Do you think this has been negotiated directly with the 2 companies directly or by their UK 'partner stockists ?

Re: Des Jacklins letter to the counties

Suppose it depends on a definition of "bulk". Each county only hosts 4/5 games over a year, needs one stage board and a couple of practice boards, its hardly a 64 lane setup is it? 10 a year then as a rough average at 15 quid more than they currently pay that's each county out an extra £150 quid.

Are these Gladiator 3 boards any good? Cant say ive ever seen 1s or 2s either?
Hard to get hold of one to see as there is only 1 place in the UK that sells them might prove a bit expensive for counties when they wear out their 2 freebies and someone realises they have a captive market

Re: Des Jacklins letter to the counties

Yeah he definitely sounds in a slaps to be handed out mood.

Obviously Des's way or the highay shame his way is straight down the plug hole !

I'd wager now hes sole main signatory on the BDO money bank he's not so transparent with people seeing the statements either
